the states and localities do that. the federal government didn't hire our teachers. i love teachers, but i want to get our private sector growing and i know how to do it. >> i think we all love teachers. gentlemen, thank you so much for a very vigorous debate. we have come to the end. it is time for closing statements. >>> we have come to the end. it is time for closing statements. i believe you're first, mr. president. >> thank you very much, bob, governor romney and to lynn university. you've now heard three debates, months of campaigning and way too many tv commercials. and now you've got a choice. over the last four years we've made real progress digging our way out of policies that gave us two prolonged wars, record deficits and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. governor romney wants to take us back to those policies. a foreign policy that's wrong and reckless. economic policies that won't create job, won't reduce our deficit, but will make sure that folks at the very top don't have to play by the same rules that you do. i've got a different vision for america. i w
way up to become a vice president at a local bank, but she hit the glass ceiling. she trained people who would end up becoming her bosses during the course of her career. she didn't complain. that's not what you did in that generation. and this is one of the reasons why one of the first -- the first bill i signed was something called the lily ledbetter bill. it was named after this aamamai woman who did the same job as a man for years, found out that she was getting paid less, and the supreme court said she couldn't bring suit because she should have found out about it earlier. she had no way to find out about it, so we fixed that. that's an example of the kind of advocacy we need because women are increasingly the bread winners in the family. this is not just a women's issue. this is a family issue, a middle class issue, and that's why we've got to fight for it. it also means that we've got to make sure that young people like yourself are able to aaffofford college education. he wants to make pell grants and other education accessible for young people. the truth of the matter is is
at a local bank but hit the glass ceiling. she trained people who became her bosses. this is why the first bill i signed was the lilly ledbetter bill. it was named after an amazing woman who had beneen doing the same job as a man for years, paidouound out she was being less, and the supreme court said she should have said something earlier. we changed that and this is what we need. the women are increasingly the breadwinners. there is a family issue, a middle class issue. this is why -- we have to make sure that young people are able to afford a college education. gov. romney wants to make pell grants accessible for young people. but that is what we've done. we've expanded them for millions of people, and millions of young women. that was560 billion going to banks and lenders and said, let's cut that out and give the money to students. we've seen millions of young people afford college. and that ensures young women can compete. we have to enforce the laws and make sure that in every walk of life we don't tolerate discrimination. i will push on this issue the next four years. >> pay equity

for education is, of course, at the state and local level. but the federal government also can play a very important role, and i agree with secretary arnie duncan. some of the ideas he's put forward on race to the top. not all of them, but some of them, i agree with and i congratulate him for pursuing that. the federal government can get local and sate soolso do a better job. my own view, by the way, i added to that. i happen to believe i want the kids getting federal dollars from idea or title i, these are disabled kids or poor kids or lower income kids, i want them to be able to go to the school of their choice so all federal funds instead of going to the state or to the school districts i'd have go, if you will, follow the child and let the parent and the child decide where to send their student. >> lehrer: how do you see the federafederal government's responsibility to, as i said, to improve e qualityof public education in this country. >>aise indicated, i think it has a significant role to play. through the race to the top we have worked with republican and democratic governors to ini
